Arise ye Tarnished, someone is making a Game Boy version of everyone’s favorite game, Elden Ring, and livestreaming the development process. This demake is just the latest development in an apparent trend with From Software games that also gave us the release of Bloodborne PSX a few months back.
According to IGN, shintendo first announced their demake via the Elden Ring subreddit, where they posted a clip of the opening area and boss fight, which is aimed at killing players and sending them to the actual in-game tutorial. The short video also features the cutest dodge roll ever and ends with the aforementioned death before the text promoting shintendo’s Twitch channel appears. They intend to show how they develop Elden Ring for the actual Game Boy hardware there and archive it on their Youtube channel.
In the comments below their Reddit post, Shintendo clarified that they were using software called GB Studio 3.0 to accomplish this massive feat. Due to that enormity, shintendo has not yet decided on the scope of the project, but said they “at least hope to finish the Limgrave area by the end of May.”
A few hours after sharing the snippet, shintendo went live on Twitch, where they showed off more work on the game’s opening areas, as well as sprite design for Varre, the maiden-calling NPC, and the fan-favorite witch. fans, Ranni. . Based on comments they made on Reddit, Shintendo hopes to release an Itch demo in late May, apparently once they’ve completed Limgrave.
Until then, everyone may just have to settle for the actual Elden Ring, which we gave a perfect score, calling it “a masterpiece of open-world design that puts exploration and player agency at the heart of the experience.” If you’re just jumping around, we’ve also got plenty of guides to help you find your footing as you venture through the Lands Between.
